Computational Electromagnetics
Fall 2003

Prof. Dr. Ronald H.W. Hoppe
Dipl. Phys. Werner E. Schabert


We give an introduction to the basic problems in electromagnetic field theory associated with Maxwell's equations in the low frequency case (eddy current equations) and in the high frequency regime (time-harmonic approach; waveguides, scattering). Then, we focus on numerical solution techniques with emphasis on the Finite Element Method (FEM) including edge elements, the Boundary Element Method (BEM), and the hybrid FEM/BEM Method for coupled interior-exterior domain problems. We will also address the Finite Integration Technique (FIT) and multipole methods.
